When debugging, if you navigate using dbup or dbdown to move around the call stack, the GUI editor debugger does not open the same file and display where you are in the stack in the editor. It still displays the last place in the stack.

It would also be very helpful if the visual debugger would open the file at the current position in the call stack when you navigate it. Similarly, a GUI method of navigating the call stack would be nice, as is present in other IDEs, including Matlab. In Matlab this is a simple drop down box where you can select the desired position in the call stack.

I have put this as a feature request, but I would suggest that not displaying the current file in the editor is verging on being a bug.
